He began playing small roles in TV movies such as "The Runaway Barge" (NBC, 1975), "The Summer of My German Soldier" (NBC, 1978) and "Fog" (CBS, 1981), but recognition didn't come until Bailey was cast as Private Rizzo, a pool-hall con man, in the 1981-1983 seasons of the hit sitcom "M*A*S*H*" (CBS, 1972-1983). This exposure won Bailey his first of five dramatic TV movies directed by Roger Young. His role in "Bitter Harvest" (NBC, 1981) was small, but he went on to play larger roles in "Love and Lies" (ABC, 1990), "Held Hostage: The Sis and Jerry Levin Story" (ABC, 1991), "Doublecrossed" (HBO, 1991), and as one of the militia fugitives in "Ruby Ridge: An American Tragedy" (CBS, 1996).
